Prayer for The Armies of the Living God Part 2

Let us lift up the Israel Defense Forces (צְבָא הַהֲגָנָה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל) (Tzva Hahagana LeYisra’el, lit. “The Army of Defense for Israel”) in prayer:

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob–may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard . . . on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May Hashem [the LORD] cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you. [Deut. 20:4]

Now let us respond: Amen.
